Commissioned by Maat Saxophone Quartet

The title of the piece refers to the ancient proto-medical theory of temperaments in which 4 types of fluids/personalities were reasons for different behaviours in humans. In the work there are 4 characters: sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic – each of them playing at their own tempo. They follow each other, by constantly changing the leader, in order to be able to keep the musical work (here: metaphor of the human psyche and body kept in balance) going.
